Safaris

The Bangweulu wetlands are destined to become Zambia's answer to Botswana's Okavango Delta in the future, but there are some substantial differences at this early stage. Although Bangweulu is home to some 75,000 endemic black lechwe along with the enigmatic shoebill, it has suffered badly at the hands of poachers.
